Personally I have no opinion on the proposed High Speed Rail Link between London & Birmingham. I won’t be using it and it doesn’t affect me where I live. So other than the fact that I think it a waste of £17.5 Billion at a time when the money could be better used elsewhere, other than being wasted as a prop for a few wealthy commuters so they can have a few extra minutes in bed.
What I do object to is a so called public consultation that does not allow those not in favour of HS2 access to the meeting. To get a ticket to the consultation you have to apply for tickets to a government website. But campaigners from Stop HS2 are being told that there is no room for them, because space is extremely limited.
Os this what is known as a consultation, I would have thought that out of a £17.5 Billion budget a few extra hundred quid could have been found for a bigger venue. Or is it that they just don’t want anybody there who is against it?
Make Love, Not War
